In baseball, hitting a home run is applauded. Conversely, in the world of unprotected sex when one possesses full blown AIDS, it's frowned upon.
Over the course of 17 MLB seasons, Roberto Alomar tagged 2,724 hits. But tagging his girlfriend and hitting her with the fatal disease would truly put the perennial All-Star second baseman in a league of his own.
According to the New York Daily News, Roberto Alomar even insisted on having unprotected sex with ex-girlfriend Ilya Dall, 31, despite his illness.
The shocking claim was leveled by Dall in a lawsuit in which she alleges she lived with the ex-Met for three years and watched in horror as his health worsened.
All of a sudden, Alex Rodriguez's steroid tests seem rather mundane.
Dall said Alomar got tested in January 2006 while suffering from a cough and fatigue: "The test results of him being HIV-positive was given to him and the plaintiff on or about February 6, 2006," the $15 million negligence suit says.
Alomar's skin had turned purple, he was foaming at the mouth and a spinal tap "showed he had full-blown AIDS," the lawsuit claims. Alomar, 41, who quit baseball over health issues in 2005, could not be reached for comment.
